what is supposedly the oldest and most primitive bird on earth might not have been a bird after all. this was discovered in 1861 in germany two years after charles darwin published on the origin of the species. with his wings like a bird but teeth and tail of a dinosaur it quickly became an icon for evolution. now, but studying a new fossil researchers in china say it should be knocked off the bird branch and classified as a bird like dinosaur. it leaves paleontologists in an awkward position. they now have to find another bird to base the story of bird life. scientists in monterey had a story about how a pair of goldfish in new zealand were able to survive 134 days without food and power. the fish were left behind when their owners were forced behind
